His research has a particular focus on educational evaluation and improvement, quantitative methods and secondary data analysis, research synthesis and review, and knowledge transfer. Tom works to support school and system leaders at all levels to improve schools through research- and evidence-informed policy and practice.
Topics which he has examined in-depth through his work include school value-added (‘Progress’) measures, teacher evaluation, professional development and learning programmes, and school effects on wider (‘non-cognitive’) outcomes.
